Amazing!Ohio's highest court has ruled that a person may be convicted of speeding purely if it looked to a police officer that the motorist was going too fast.
Why even bother with speed acquiring devices when an officers visual estimate is admissable in court?
This is one stupid idea by the Ohio High Court. So an officer from 1/4 mile away can tell that you are speeding.
GA's high court has ruled the same way that visual estimation of speed can be enough to convict. They did say it can be inaccurate by up to 10 MPH though so you would have to be really flying to get it to hold up.

So this made CNN. Perhaps this will shed more light on revenue generating tactics simply based on hunches and estimates without evidence or probable cause.
X2 on what Cat4 said. Officers trained in visual estimation can usually nail the speed visually by 1-3 mph --- you'd be surprised. Just ask any of the cops here, they can be very accurate with proper training. Surprised at Ohio, many states have allowed this for decades.
How would you overturn a speeding ticket based on an estimate? Try to attack the officers depth perception? What if you are the only car on the road, how can they guess your speed?
